Natives

white calochortus, reddish variety
1. My obsession with Calochortus did not really extend to the discreet charm of the fairy lanterns until C. albus var. rubellus started blooming the other day. Now I'm a believer.

Also: fairy lantern!

2: If you liked reading about the Presidio manzanita, you'll love this unnamed species.

That's really cute! I did a lookup and see that there are other colors, do you have a collection going?

Beautiful photograph...those fairy lanterns really are nice. Have you seen the species native to Mt. Diablo?
